Ceramics: flottierend*e welle 2001 (floating wave)
The sculpture "Flottierende Welle" (floating wave) was made in
2001 for the exhibition "ceramics - Form und Phantastik in der
Europäischen Bildhauerkunst" and is now finally seated in the
garden of the European patent agency in Vienna.
*"flottierend" - or "floating" - because the ceramic material seems to have frozen while in movement. It spreads out both horizontally and vertically as if it could still move or be modeled. In this sense, "flottierend" embodies the state of the material before and during its transformation into a sculpture.
